Chapter One: Understanding Palmistry
The first chapter is dedicated to some general knowledge of how palmistry came about. Before we deal with its system or process, it’s important to know the scope of the topic first. Some people becomes very confused about what a palmist can and cannot do, or how palmistry works in general, because of what they read off of magazines, press, social media or internet blogs, or what they’ve heard from various stories passed on from one family to another about predictions of ones future and the nature of palm reading. These are main causes of confusion because our mind tends to formulate opinions or perceptions based on what we see or hear. Unfortunately, for a lot of people palmistry is something that is unrealistic.
Again, we cannot tell for sure if it actually works or not because there are also instances or situations where we can say that it could be related to what is written in a person’s palm (based on the interpretation of the palmist or expert), but then again no one can prove it. For me, it’s not really a question of whether it works or not. It’s more of, if the person believes it or not, which is why keeping an open mind is crucial especially if you wanted to become a proficient palmist.
What is Palmistry?
Palmistry or Chiromancy is the study and interpretation of the human palms. Palmist or palm readers basically look at the hands of their subjects or customers and perform a thorough analysis of the many aspects of the hand, and from there draws hypothetical meanings in accordance to the rules and structure of palmistry.
There are many factors to consider before one can do a proficient palm reading; usually, experts try to determine first the nature of the person they’re trying to read. It involves learning about the subject’s character, personality, mentality, physical aspects, sexuality, and background as well as other essential factors such as the complexity and characteristics of the hand and fingers. Every hand is unique, and it tells a different story. Just like fingerprints, you can never find the exact same hand print because every individual who ever lived is quite ‘special,’ perhaps it is what makes us human. There may be some similarities in terms of patterns but it’s not the same. Even if individuals have the exact same hand print, for sure, they still came from different backgrounds and have different set of personalities which will alter the meaning of their palms altogether.
Each pair of hands for one individual is also unique; you don’t get the exact same hand print for both your left and right hands, which is why it should also be treated individually. If a palmist says that they can predict when an individual is going to get married and have kids, or when will someone dies they are most likely a fraud or a charlatan because they have lost touched with reality and became too idealistic already. A true palmist or a proficient reader should not claim anything; you can quickly tell or gauge if they’re proficient or not by the number of years they’ve been in the field or by how well they assess everything before making any assumptions – not conclusions.
Despite of palmistry’s long history, it is still fairly new and still has lots of aspects yet to be discovered. Some experts say that palmistry can be used to treat psychological illnesses or mental issues because the nature of its process involves exploring a person’s inner self to reveal one’s conflicts and draw ‘predictions’ from there. It’s almost the same with what psychologist or mental therapist do to a patient in order for him/her to get in touch with his/her inner self to resolve underlying issues. Palmistry could be one of the treatments that could help in curing psychiatric illnesses in the future according to some experts.
Time can only tell if palmistry can be proven as a valuable tool in the field of psychiatric medicine, and will one day be part of psychology’s future. It’s still a long way before that can happen, but like any other things, it can be a possibility. Nevertheless, if you are interested in delving into the unknown, and grapple with human nature’s complexities then palmistry can help you get started.
How to Distinguish Palm Readers from Frauds
There is a huge difference in knowing something and applying what you know. Dealing with your subject is of utmost importance which is why the application of practical knowledge about every aspect relating to palmistry should be considered because it will benefit you especially when your subject or customer asks questions or make queries about the difference between what you said in your previous readings to your present readings.
Customers especially those who may not entirely believe in the practice of palmistry will definitely have doubts about your reading which is why you need to be able to distinguish yourself from frauds or at least know about the different “types” of palm readers so that you can also determine what kind of palmist or reader you wanted to be.
